I heard that today is the deadline for the judging, is that true?

If so, can you tell me when you will confirm the winners as I am a bit excited and hyped!

Got mine, gonna start on projects now. Thank you

Awesome! Don't forget about the Intel IoT Invitational! It's going on now through October 12, 2015.

can i have one

I'm sorry, but this giveaway ended and we have no more kits to give away.

does any one have a helpful set up guide? I'm using a mac so the it dev kit doesn't load the required image, then i have to go to flashing it through the terminal. I've managed to load the required docs onto the edison but I'm having a hard time logging into the edison on the terminal. Sometimes it finds the device and a lot of the times its doesn't. Any helpful forums I can look at? Thanks

no worries, I turned everything off then on again and its now fully functional

I wanted to post something quickly about this platform. To make a long story short, I am on my third Edison kit. The first two had issues when using external power. After working with Intel, they let me send my first Edison back to them and then they sent to me another kit that turned out to be defective. Intel again was going to let me send it back to them. After some talking and escalation with/at Intel, I talked them into paying for the shipping to return the second defective kit.

The newest kit seems to work with external power through the barrel plug. I may need to flash the Edison again as it is not playing well with the Wi-Fi at my brother's house. It seemed to work OK at my house.

I have been able to make a simple project using an LED, buzzer, and pod. I created a simple metronome that beeps and blinks in 4/4. The pod lets you change the tempo up and down with a constraint from 50 to 250 bpm. When it is set at 50, it stops. Kind of like an off.

The next step is to hook up the LCD screen to display the tempo. Right now I just do a serial print with the current tempo.

Anyway, the Arduino board seems to be very touchy with the external power input. I look forward to playing with the Edison to see what I can get it to do with all of the tools in it arsenal: Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, SD card slot, MORE MEMORY!! :-)

Woah, I'm so glad that you have had open communication with the folks at Intel. Did you publish an Instructable of your Edison projects? Just making sure you got your gift card.....
